Ellen- Have to laugh at your title. Must have been a rough week. This one my dear friend went right into my favorites. Incredible work with this macro. A beauty in its presentation with the edges of the leaves. The colors are gorgeous. The icing on the cake is the details. So sharp, so clear. You can see the little hairs as I call them and then those beautiful water drops. Astonishing work girl.
Annie and I hope you have a great Friday, get to enjoy the weekend. You be careful out their girl.
